If the US did not have Israel, they'd have no military home base or a place to land their planes in the middle east. Any change in diplomacy with the arabic countries and the US would have no soil to put their military on.
    Israel is not a "western" thinking country. Israel is a very traditional, religious and sometime closed country. Israel is as Middle eastern as any country in the Middle East.

    The US has bases all over the world and can attack anybody from anywhere. They have bases in Turkey, they have bases in Greece, Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Kuwait, and so on. The United States doesn't need Israel, but respects it because the US is a good country.

    Israel has another good thing going for it: the Jewish-Americans are very powerful and influential in the US, in the media, banking system and politics, thus guaranteeing support for Israel no matter what.

    No other country enjoys such luxuries.

    Actually ........... the US needs the world ... and the world needs US.

    Like it or now, we are symbiotic. We will either live together or die. It's just that simple.

    Well, this is a thread about Israel, and you answered right after my post about the US not needing Israel and much as Israel needs the US. Yeah, why did I get confused!?

    Did you read my first post about EVERY nation having different STANDARDS on WiFi channels and power output levels?

    Check it out!!!!!! China is the worst!!!!!!!!!!
    Almost every European Nation has a different power output.

    And let's not forget about the US. Our standards are just as confusing as the rest.

    BOTTOM LINE: If Apples product doesn't comply with a countries standards, it will be banned. Plain and simple. US does it ALL THE TIME. If not Israel, it would be another. So stop bashing the 1st country that 'steps' on poor Apples' feet It's Apple who must get their ducks in a row!!!

    Pretty much yeah, that's exactly what could happen. If its deemed illegal in their country just cause your visiting you don't get a free pass.

    Anyone visiting the USA from Amsterdam had better leave the pot home too. Just cause you can have it where you live, doesn't mean you can just take it anywhere.

    If you have ever traveled to other parts of the world you'll know the police and security in some of these places are not to be messed with. Some guy with a machine gun tells you to give up the ipad, your giving it up. If you don't, they will simply break it, or you. (in some places both)

    The thing is they are confiscating ones that is owned by someone getting into the country, they have rights to take the thing even if it is turned off. Meaning all that WiFi standard is not the reason behind taking iPad away from people bringing them in.
    Why don't they charge the fine that includes holding the device until you leave the country?
    There is something else behind this, just got to find out what.

    Sure it does. Once you enter a country you are bound by their laws, regardless of whether you "think so."

    "damn jews "

    and

    "If a country is ok with killing women and kids, then it shouldn't be angry at the people who talk **** about it because they simply don't care "

    what the F is wrong with you ?
    I agree that many comments are immature and just down right wrong. That said, it is just as annoying to see people complain "MODERATORS WHERE ARE YOU???" You can feel free to stop reading the thread at any time. Are you really that fragile that your eyes can't stand the racial remarks? It exists whether you see it or not.

    We have the same kind of laws here in the US. You can't sell an electronic device like an iPad without it first being tested by our government (aka the FCC).

    I think this thread needs to be deleted. This has turned into a hate thread on Israel and most of you have no clue what your talking about...

    You guys are so ignorant read the article before you say... Damn Jews, they want flash, or they don't like American politics. The article states the reason why they don't allow them first of all and second of all get your facts straight about israel.
